RSS feed

This add-on enables you to insert contents from a RSS feed link directly into the emails you send.

Insertion

This plugin will add the following option in the AcyMailing editor, just drag&drop this new content type into the email you are building.

Main options

  • URL: You'll have to paste your RSS link here. Please use a well formatted RSS feed

  • Fields to display:

    • Title: The title of the RSS elements

    • Image: This reffers to the <enclosure> part of the elements. The supported types are jpg, jpeg, png and gif

    • Description: This is the main content of the elements

    • Author: If the authors are specified on the elements of your RSS feed, they will be displayed after each element

    • Publishing date: The main date format will be used to display the date, using the timezone defined on your website

  • Display pictures: This option will only hide the images included in the description part of the elements if you select "No", as you can independently select the main image in the "Fields to display" option

Other options

  • Clickable title: Choose if you want the title / main image to be clickable or not, it will use the link defined in the RSS element

  • Truncate: this will only cut the description, it isn't active on the other displayed parts

  • Columns: If you insert multiple elements at once, you can display for example 2 elements on each row with this option

  • Max. number of elements: The number of elements you insert in your email

  • Min. number of elements: If the number of elements found in your RSS feed is lower than the number you specify, the email won't be sent. This is only useful when using the "Automatic" option in the "Send settings" tab of a campaign.
